Le Vent du Nord

I was listening to NPR recently and heard a Quebecois group called "Le Vent du Nord" or "The Wind from the North."  The band plays traditional Quebecois music.  The neat thing is that they play songs that date from the founding of Quebec and came across from France.  Meanwhile, these same French songs have become extinct in France.
There are songs to listen to both at NPR's website (where you can hear the report) and also at the band's MySpace page.  They're also on iTunes.
